Often when people start to wake up to the idea of boundary setting, it is overwhelming. What boundaries do I set? Am I really allowed to say I want that? What if people don’t like my boundaries?
The truth is, boundaries are your greatest key to freedom and self respect AND they are also the thing that will require THE MOST courage EVER. Once you set them, the limits of your self respect and commitment to honor yourself will be tested. Many people won’t like them. By setting and holding your boundaries, you will be taking back all of the power other people, groups, and institutions have had over you - which will upset them.
